Spaciotempo understand the importance of uninterrupted business and we will endeavour to get on site as fast as possible, assess what can be achieved and present you with feasible solutions, accurate quotations and realistic timescales – in order to ensure that your temporary building enables business continuity.

Spaciotempo know all too well the strain our National Health Service is under, and the shortages of infrastructure plays a front and centre role in its problems. Many of the UK’s hospitals and medical centres lack the necessary space for patients, either in the form of waiting areas or wards to accommodate beds. Furthermore, our temporary canopies make ideal ambulance shelters for patient transportation.

We can provide temporary hospital buildings and welfare facilities for staff, patients, and even medical vehicles to help alleviate some of these pressures to quickly come to the aid of the medical sector.

Royal Stoke Hospital

As part of a wider site modernisation process, Balfour Beatty in Derby asked Spaciotempo to design a temporary industrial building which would make better use of the available space.

Following the coronavirus outbreak, medical professionals know all too well that a critical emergency is never too far away.

In Spring of 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic placed enormous unforeseen strain on the NHS. Due to social distancing measures, our hospitals faced an enormous shortage of space as staff and patients alike were forced to stay apart. Spaciotempo demonstrated the true versatility of temporary buildings for hospitals, by providing additional sheltered space in the form of staff welfare facilities and covered walkways to help facilitate social distancing.

If you’re in need of a temporary building for emergency welfare facilities, Spaciotempo can ensure that you’re not caught short. Whether it’s staff canteens and dining spaces or the provision of changing rooms, toilets and washroom facilities, we can help you out fast – and with little notice.

Seasonal fluctuation in workforce numbers often leads to a shortage of space, but in truth you may never know when you will be in need of additional capacity. A temporary building from Spaciotempo can be fitted out to meet your exact specification to ensure that your personnel have appropriate welfare facilities on-site and nearby.

What our customer Stephen Smith (Rondo Foods) says about us

emergency buildings for insurance

Spaciotempo couldn’t have been more helpful, even going that extra mile on Christmas Eve to provide me with information so we could move forward without delay.

I can’t thank the Spaciotempo team enough. Fifteen days after the fire, our 1,500 square foot temporary warehouse building, which we are leasing for two years, was up and working and it is business as usual while we plan for the re-build.
